Shia LaBeouf & Kate Mara in Dito Montiel's 'Man Down' Official Trailer
"What happened in that room is real…" Lionsgate Premiere has released the trailer for a war drama titled Man Down, the latest from filmmaker Dito Montiel (of A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints). Set in some kind of post-apocalyptic version of America (or so the synopsis claims), Shia LaBeouf plays a marine with PTSD who goes on a search to find his son. The cast includes Kate Mara, Gary Oldman, Jai Courtney, Clifton Collins Jr., Charlie Shotwell, and Wolé Parks. An oddly impressive cast, but I don't remember hearing a single thing about this when it premiered at festivals - usually a bad sign. It doesn't look that bad.
Here's the first official trailer (+ original poster) for Dito Montiel's Man Down, direct from YouTube:
In a post-apocalyptic America, former U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer (Shia LaBeouf) searches desperately for the whereabouts of his son, accompanied by his best friend and a survivor. Man Down is directed by American filmmaker Dito Montiel, of A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, Fighting, The Son of No One, Empire State and Boulevard previously. The screenplay is written by Adam G. Simon (Synapse). This first premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals back in 2015. Lionsgate Premiere will release Montiel's Man Down in select theaters in the US starting December 2nd coming up soon. So is anyone interested?
